OOPS! UL450 Undercarriage leg wanted and other parts!

Postby SteveT » Mon Sep 07, 2015 7:16 pm

Due to a pilot error on Saturday, I need a few spares and thought I'd check on here before buying new:

1 LHS undercarriage leg
1 Undercarriage Leg Clamp (and bolt set)
1 Brake Disk
1 LHS tyre and inner tube (preferably without big split in side)
Both nose wheel fork legs

I was lucky, it could have been far worse, therefore whilst the above are for a standard Jab undercarriage, I would be interested in upgrading to the Big Foot wheels instead as they may have prevented my mishap. If anyone has a big foot conversion available, or comments about them, I'd welcome opinions and hopefully the chance to buy.

I'm based in Hereford, but work near London, so can travel to collect or arrange shipping if anyone can help?

Many Thanks

Steve

Blimey, I have thumped mine in a few times to the point when learning we looked back to see if the undercarriage was left on the runway. jabs seem to have a tuff set of legs

Operator error Gary.

I had full right rudder on trying to correct a take off roll, had recovered my line, but decided to abort the take off. When I shut the throttle, I didn't straighten the rudder and touched the nose wheel down with full right turn on!

I'm used to a Shadow with castor in nose wheel and very authoritative rudder and the Jab caught me out.

Basic mistake, but costly!
